Years ago America discovered one of the most irrepressible Englishmen of our times in the rollicking best-seller The Notebooks of Major Thompson. Now Major Thompson, as editor, interpreter, and guide to Pierre Daninos, explores the foibles of the English-speaking world and discovers America. As you know, the Major is no ordinary traveler.

His peregrinations in French were so delightfully reported that 820,000 Frenchmen bought his Notebooks – to laugh at themselves.

Here in The Secret of Major Thompson millions of Americans have the same irresistible opportunity. To Wit: Funny book, great addition for the avid book collector. Please see pictures of this wonderful book.
